West Pier

This photograph was taken from near the seaward end of West pier (the commercial fishing pier) and is looking toward the town. The building standing forward of the town, with the large brown door, is the lifeboat house.

In the late 60ís I dabbled with a number of different makes of slide film before settling on Kodachrome. This one was a Boots own brand that you had to mount into your own frames, hence no actual processing date. The date given for the year taken is, by my recollection, the latest possible processing date. However, it could have been at any time during 1965 to 1969.
